The Northclick Blog:
Message Queue Project First working version
December 07, 2007 @ 13:41:00

On the Northclick blog, Soenke Ruempler has posted an update on the "message queue" project based on a previous draft.

Some time has elapsed since we wrote our draft for a message queue system written in and for PHP. Now it's time to give you guys an update and working beta-code. [...] You can find the project homepage at https://opensource.ruempler.eu/pmq/. We'd be proud if you have some cool naming tips for this project - we haven't registered a domain yet. At the moment it's temporarily called "PHP Message Queue".

Check out the post for more specifics about the updates/advancements they've made or you can download the current code from their SVN repository.

Ligaya Turmelle's Blog:
W3C Launches New HTML Working Group
March 12, 2007 @ 10:46:00

Ligaya Turmelle has relayed some great news in her latest blog entry, something that the web's been needing for a long time - a new group from the W3C created specifically for enhancing the HTML standard.

Now I have to admit to being curious about what is going on - after all anything new dealing with the web affects me as PHP coder. Since the W3C is supposedly interested in input from the Web community and content developers, I decided to see who from PHP would be there. Granted it is very early for the formation of the group so it didn't really surprise me to see no one from PHP that I know or heard about in there, but I wonder if anyone from the PHP Group will become a "invited expert" somewhere down the road.

The group is looking for members to help define this next generation of markup on the web. Check out their page for some of the qualifications needed to participate and for some of the upcoming events.W3C Launches New HTML Working Group

Zend Developer Zone:
Streamline Working with XML in PHP Using Service Data Objects (Part 1 & 2)
August 09, 2006 @ 07:34:48

The Zend Developer Zone has posted both Part 1 and Part 2 of a series from IBM today, a look at using XML in PHP with the help of the Service Data Objects.

Looking at SDOs and their associated interface, you should get a clear idea of the API the SDO extension provides. We then move on to show a working example of using SDOs in a two-part application comprising a small PHP application to implement a simple Web log (blog) and a part that displays that blog as an RSS feed. Both parts use SDOs as a way of working with XML. We hope you will agree that SDO is an attractive option for working with XML data in PHP.

In part one, they get down to basics and introduce what the service data objects are, how they work, what they look like, and what kind of options they offer. Near the end, they start talking some about the XML structure in preparation for the next part.

Part two picks up right where the previous part left off, taking the basic knowledge and building on it, showing how to create an SDO, and add the namespaces needed. From there, for the sake of time, they give a simple blogging application for download to illustrate how the pieces fit together. They break apart the pieces, showing what each part does and demonstrate how to add entries to the blogging application.

IBM developerWorks Blog:
What's the problem? (Working Directories)
May 17, 2006 @ 05:59:28

On the IBM developerWorks blog today, there's this look at the differences between PHP and Windows when it comes to the working directory you're grabbing in your script.

I recently investigated the values of the PHP and Windows working directory for a variety of environments. My reason for doing so was that I could never quite understand how relative pathnames were resolved, and if you want to write code that will run, for example, both under Zend Studio, from the command line, and Apache, it matters. And it is not surprising that I never understood it either - every environment is different.

He ran five tests to show each of the environments that a PHP script might be running in and what two methods return - PHP's getcwd and Windows' getcwd in direct.h). There are some similarities between the output of the two, but there's enough difference to be worrysome for any programmer making scripts for both. He also gives a specific example of a situation he was in involving incorrect paths and libxml2 and the difficulties that were found there.

DevShed:
Abstract Classes in PHP - Working with PHP 5
February 09, 2006 @ 06:47:12

DevShed has posted the last part of their "Abstract Classes in PHP" series today - "Working with PHP5".

In this last part of the series, I'll explain the key points of abstract classes in PHP 5, and additionally provide you with some hands-on examples. This should give you a clear idea of how to utilize them within the powerful Object Model implemented in the latest version of PHP.

They start with an overview of the PHP5 object model and how it make sabstract classes much easier than before. They continue, mentioning a "pointless and unusual" practice of calling class methods out of context. Finally, they set up an example of the use of an abstract class in the structure of the PHP5 object model...
